We have received this appeal from the wonderful team at the Friary, in West Bridgford:
"As we begin to plan for winter by making sure our food stocks are plentiful to cope with the anticipated demand for food from local homeless and vulnerable adults like to need our services this year, we ask for your help in appealing for specific items on our behalf.
The effect of the pandemic means providing food and drink to those who access our services is as important as it has ever been.
To ensure our shelves are stocked ready for the year ahead, Harvest time contributions are vital to the Friary's service. The food donations will be used to provide snacks for rough sleepers, as well as tinned products that are suitable for those who have access to cooking facilities. We are providing both food parcels and hot food from the centre. For the period April 2020 - March 2021 we handed out 1799 food parcels.
Your donations make a real difference to people's lives.
Please help us to help others!
All types of food can be re-distributed. Nothing goes to waste!
If you wish to donate food please contact the Friary to arrange a convenient pick-up time for our van by phoning 0115 9825448 Option 1 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in anticipation of your help and support."
